I have had an obsession with the early years of cinema and classic Hollywood movies since the age of 5.
My shelves are full of gorgeous tomes narrating the lives of all the Hollywood cinema pioneers, the directors and the stars, as well as books about the fabulous movies they all made together.
Recently, The Guardian published a list of The top 25 most compelling Hollywood autobiographies.
I have one of them (number 8 on the list): Lulu in Hollywood by the enthralling Louise Brooks (one of my favourites!). Ms Brooks ended up living as a recluse in a New York flat for about 25 years before she started writing about movies.
My copy is the Arena 1987 edition, so unfortunately, it is not the 1982 first edition!
Below: Brooks in her most famous film, the disturbingly alluring Pandora's Box.
Classic Hollywood movies and stars make up a large chunk of Arcane Publishing stock of pre-loved/rare and vintage books, including some SIGNED autobiographies... More about those very soon on the Arcane website!
I think therefore I write.
